The Career Development Center of Middle Tennessee State University will be hosting its annual Fall Career Fair from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25, in Murphy Center.
This is the second year in a row the fair will reach its targeted capacity of 160 employers and graduate/professional schools. Over 900 MTSU students and alumni are expected to attend the event, which is free and open to students and alumni.
“The job market in Middle Tennessee is robust and we are pleased to have record employer attendance for a second year in a row,” said Bill Fletcher, director of the Career Development Center.
Fletcher noted that the Fall Career Fair is the only campuswide career fair of the academic year, and students should dress professionally and take advantage of meeting employers.
New this year is a mobile career fair app for both Apple and Android devices. By downloading the app, students and alumni can see a list of employers, graduate/professional schools, descriptions, positions, and table locations on a map of the Murphy Center. More information on downloading the app is at www.mtsu.edu/career.
The fair hosts employers who are hiring for professional entry-level positions and/or career-related internships/co-ops, as well as graduate and professional schools recruiting for their academic programs. This year’s corporate sponsors are Enterprise-Rent-A-Car, EFC Systems and Franke.
The Career Development Center is a centralized comprehensive center that serves all students in each of MTSU’s nine colleges. MTSU students may come to the Career Development Center’s office in Keathley University Center Room 328 for walk-in advising, resume critique, and more. Scheduled appointments are also available with career advisers.
Alumni services are outlined on the center’s website. Alumni bringing vehicles to campus for the fair can secure visitor passes through MTSU’s Office of Parking and Transportation at 1403 E. Main St. or online at www.mtsu.edu/parking/visit.php.
